View Full Version : active video signal after poweroff

Just as I am writing this, I realized this is not a problen with emulation, as it is an mvpmc problem in general. Or maybe there is a config setting to fix it.

Anyway, the issue that I am seeing is that even though I pressed the power button and the red light went out, there is still an active video signal fro the MVP. I have a few MVP and one is connected to a TV that only has RF input. So I have an RF mudulator that takes over channel 3 if a signal is detected from the video cables from the MVP. When I shut off the MVP, it does not return to the regular channel 3. I have to pull the plug to get the regular TV back.


So even though the MVP may appear off, it is actually sending a blank screen. Is there a way to configure it to shutoff the video signal on poweroff? Or is this a bug or intentional.

Thanks,
Greg

How does the Hauppauge software handle this?

When I run the regular dongle.bin that comes with GBPVR and press the power button on the MVP remote, the video signal stops and my RF modulator returns to regular channel 3. There is a little light on the front of the modulator that lights up when there is an input signal. When I poweroff the MVP running mvpmc, the light remains on. When using hauppauge dongle, the light turns off.

I had a look at the source code and it does call a function av_deactivate(). If you power off before going into emulation mode after a boot does the composite out go off?

Hmmm. Figures. I can't make it happen today. If it happens again, I'll try and figured out the steps to reproduce.
